Taylor Swift has made public his battle against Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta in hopes of regaining control of their masters. As it seems to be a lost game, the artist plans to re-record her original songs, but hopes that her trip will change the music industry for writers.
After urging fans to chase after the new Big Machine owners before their great performance at the Billboard Awards, Taylor is the magazine's Woman of the Year and recently sat down with them to talk about their new goal.
If you are not aware of what is happening, Swift's discography belongs to his old label that is under new management and cannot benefit from the songs he wrote for more than ten years.
She explains why this is so important and why she never wants this to happen to another person.
‘We have to think about how we handle master recordings, because this is not so. When I stood up and talked about this, I saw many fans saying, "Wait, the creators of this job don't own their work, ever?" I spent 10 years of my life rigorously trying to buy my teachers directly and was then denied that opportunity, and I don't want that to happen to another artist if I can avoid it. At least I want to raise my hand and say: “This is something that an artist should be able to recover in the course of his agreement, not as a renegotiation ploy, and something that artists should have the first right to refuse. to buy ". God, I would have paid so much for them! Anything to own my job that was a real selling option, but they didn't give it to me. "
The Lover singer opens up about how often she is asked to have one of her songs in a movie or advertisement, but rejects it because she only wants it to happen if she has it.
Like R,amp;B singer Jojo, Taylor plans to re-record his old music so that she owns them and can distribute it any way she wants.
As for when it will start, you are still unsure.
& # 39; I don't know! But it will be fun, because he will want to regain freedom and recover what is mine. When I created (these songs), I didn't know what they would grow up in. Going back and knowing what something meant to people is really a really beautiful way to celebrate what fans have done for my music. "
The country-pop star also has a Netflix documentary that will premiere in Sundance early next year.
